|''The Big Party'' - 8 October 1959|
An episode of the late-1950s variety series "The Big Party". Each episode was a whopping 90 minutes. In this episode, Rock Hudson throws a party, his guests include the multi-talented Sammy Davis Jr. (is there anything he can't do?), Tallulah Bankhead, an under-used Esther Williams, a surprising (by 1959 TV standards) Mort Sahl, and other celebrities. Barbara Britton is also around to give us lots of Revlon commercials, and was the only recurring cast member in the short-lived series.
